About this Event

Drawing on international historians’ recognition that governmental and nongovernmental organizations have played key roles as both actors and arenas for internationalism (most prominently the League of Nations and United Nations), these three papers explore the institutions created within South Asia as tools of global outreach, as well as the ways South Asians engaged with extant institutions for internationalist aims. Collectively, this theme explores institutions as spaces of internationalism while also using them to reflect on different scales of global engagement.

This session will provide an opportunity for questions and conversation around three pre-recorded talks:

1. Tanja Bührer (University of Bern), “Foreign Relations between the British East India Company and South Indian States and the Global Transformations of Internationalism during the Long Nineteenth Century”

2. Swati Chawla (OP Jindal Global University), “Himalayan, not Chinese or Indian: Bhutan, Sikkim and Tibet at the Twilight of Empire, 1946-49”

3. Marc Reyes (University of Connecticut), “In the Circle of Great Powers: India's National and International Quest to Master the Atom"
